The black-and-white monochrome look is nothing new to the world of fashion, it has been regularly favourited by not only catwalk designers but also high street stores. What is the reason for its continuous popularity? Well, not only is it a trend that is universally flattering for all shapes and sizes, but also by wearing monochrome instantly gives you a polished and sophisticated look.

Although, I do agree that being tip to toe in monochrome stripes can be quite daunting.  Over the years horizontal stripes have been given a huge amount of criticism, many women believe that they extremely unflattering; making even the slimmest person look larger. However, with this particular monochrome striped dress, I think that the strategically placed block coloured top half helps to break up the impact of the stripes and accentuates natural curves.

This gorgeous black-and-white striped midi dress is from high street favourite Zara at the steal price of only £25.99. With its stretchy jersey material, is a great fit on the majority of body shapes. It is perfect to wear to the office with a sweet black blazer and courts or you can easily dress it up for the evening. For this look I decided to pair it with my New Look double strap black platform heels; these super high heels are great for dressing up even the simplest outfit.

What are your thoughts? To monochrome or not to monochrome?
